Brown & roast the pork
• Pat the pork dry with paper towels and season on all sides with S&P.
• In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot.
• Add the seasoned pork to the hot pan (fat side down) and cook for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown.
• Flip the roast and cook, 1-2 minutes on each of the remaining five sides, or until browned all over.
• Transfer the seared roast to a sheet pan (fat side up), leaving any browned bits of pork in the pan on the stovetop.
• Roast the pork, 10 to 14 minutes, or until cooked to 140 degrees.
• Remove from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Let rest for at least 5 minutes.

• Add the flour and cook, whisking constantly, 20-30 seconds, or until golden.
• Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the milk and one and a half cups of water; season with S&P. Cook, whisking frequently, 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened.
• Remove from heat.
